The European Commission has integrated its various educational and training initiatives under a single umbrella, the Lifelong Learning Programme.
Erasmus is the EU's flagship education and training programme, enabling two hundred thousand students to study and work abroad each year, as well as supporting co-operation actions between higher education institutions across Europe. It caters not only for students, but also for professors and business staff who want to teach abroad and for university staff who wants to be trained abroad.

Higher education institutions which want to participate in Erasmus actions must have an Erasmus University Charter. The Charter aims to guarantee a high level of quality in mobility and cooperation by setting out fundamental principles for all Erasmus actions that participating institutes must follow.
Erasmus Extended University Charter
IBS is proud to announce that it has been awarded an Erasmus University Charter (Erasmus ID code LT VILNIUS 19). The extended charter permits IBS to participate in the Lifelong Learning Programme from 2007. Apart from giving the university the right to participate in Erasmus, the Charter outlines the fundamental principles of Erasmus and the minimum terms and conditions that the participating universities must respect in carrying out Erasmus activities.
